Reduced from £280.07! Really decent price for a great board, especially if your looking for a 1st series Ryzen build. Bios can be updated for 2000 series Ryzen. Board has great features too!

How many PCI-E slots ??? Why don't people post more info.. oh well.


To be fair, I think if you were going to spend this much on a motherboard you would already have done research and know what you needed.
Anyway, there are 2 x PCI-E 3.0x16 and 1 x PCI-E 2.0 x 16. There are also 2x PCI-E 2.0 x 1. Supports Crossfire and SLI if you are still in to that sort of stuff.
Agree though, more info would still be useful.
No need to spend anywhere near this much on old or new gen unless you are a serious overclocker.

Can pretty much tell from the pic😋
That's one huge vrm!
A quick Google indicates it's a 12+4 phase !

It's a good price for what is one of the best x370 boards available, though unless you're into extreme (LN2) overclocking it'll be enormous overkill.

How hot does the VRMs get.

thanks

Surely that depends on how much you overclock?
So I was just about to pull the trigger on a "ASUS PRIME AMD Ryzen X470-PRO AM4 ATX Motherboard" at £150. The plan was to use a 1700 (from a recent deal on HUKD) and upgrade the CPU to a Zen+ 7nm in a year or two.

Would this high-end X370 be better than the mid-range X470 I was planning to get? Thanks for any pointers..

Negative, I tried to order and 3.99 was the only postage option.
Not that I have anything against Asrock as such but was anyone actually spending £280 on an Asrock board even if it does have blingy lights and Professional and Gaming tags in the name . I've had some great Asrock boards but I never paid anything like this for them. I had an Asrock Z170 Extreme4 last year and got that for £60 from Amazon and that was packed to the brim with features like USB-C as well as 6 PCIe slots (4 full size).
Asrocks are best boards for the price
And to think, Asrock used to be the el-cheapo motherboards.

4 full sized slots eh?

Here's the thing:

Board is mostly good, except for a couple of points which are considered as question marks:

* Memory support, is probably not going be quite so good as on other, newer x470 boards. Being limited by that also depends on how fast your kit can actually reach.
* X370 boards are supposedly not to include the new 'more clever' version of XFR boost (which still isn't that clever). Although if you do prefer to OC manually instead then the boosting algorithm is always disabled.

Theres also the other 'fusion drive' type feature. The disk caching thing. But most people don't really care about that...

Other versions of this same design have also been discounded to similar prices going EOL. For the Z170 and Z270. This one: have 5 gigabit aquantia NIC. And the VRM is good. However since ryzen is capped near 4ghz, and depends so heavily on memory overclocking then you might want to research that side of things a bit more before pulling the trigger.

You also have to understand that you may also encounter general stability issues with ryzen as a platform. And other memory training / resetting type issues... Which is not necessarily going to be a problem for you personally... it's just something thats been reported by a lot of ryzen generation 1 users, while overclocking around the 4ghz and running faster memory and so on. YMMV

Well on average I would say 3.9GHz on 1700

That was a typo. Does it matter? You can’t space out 4 slots to make them usable with dual slot cards - anyway the 1x slots will accommodate 16x cards as they’re all open backed. I guess it does matter to you or you wouldn’t have gone to that effort. But hey, I can’t judge you for how you spend you time.

I think it's quite difficult to come up with an average number for this sort of stuff, and even if you can, it's kind of meaningless.
The achievable overclocks on a CPU follow almost a negative expo curve. Without getting to mathsy, you get a lot of people able to OC to 3.3GHz, and very few able to get to 4.1, or even 4.0GHz (I think it's something like 20% can hit 4.0GHz with a 1700).
In addition to that, you have to consider the ambient temperature inside the case because of the passive cooling on the VRMs.

So all in all, its near impossible to say how hot the VRMs will get.
I hope this will help me win 18 world titles
